Second precision on timing

I need precision down to seconds please! Sounds silly, but I start and stop tasks very frequently, so having the seconds lost or rounded is a major pain for me. I hope this is easy to add, I just purchased the app but I can't really use it without second precision.

    Hi Ted,

    Thank you very much for purchasing Timelime!

    No worries, you can start and stop tasks frequently and the times will be accurate.
    That's because internally the app stores timings with a millisecond precision. When timings are added up for a chart or any other display/export, the seconds and milliseconds of each timing are considered.

    Also, you can display the duration of each timing in hours/minutes/seconds in the "Timings" view. Just select the timing and choose "Get Info" or click on the colored dot to the left of every timing.

    I hope this helps,
